A brilliant beautiful middle of the road pink round.#128

Need picture #128

When I looked at the posted gemstone, I began thinking of all the pinks I have seen over the years. I admit that I am a bit jaded about pink except for a relatively few truly exciting examples.  So I have to clean my mind and clear my eyes when I see a really pretty gemstone that happens to be pink.  With my renewed attitude, this standard round brilliant a really fine gemstone.  It has all the attributes of fine transparency, medium tone and a well saturated pink color.  It would make anyone, who likes pink, happy.  It weighs 1.87 carats.


About Bruce Fry

I was born in Summit, NJ in 1947 and graduated from Summit High School in 1966. I graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 1970 and after spending another year in graduate school, I left to see the world of Brazil. After spending some more time discovering myself, I ended up working for the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for 32 years as an Air Quality Engineer in the Department of Environmental Protection. I retired in 2007 and took up faceting gemstones again after a long hiatus that reached back to my twenties. I had started cutting cabochons when I was 13 and bought my first faceting machine when I was 15, but ran out of money and time until I retired. My great love in gemology is tourmaline and the collection presented here represents my effort to get as much beauty and variety in the colors of tourmaline as I can. I was particularly lucky in being able to get unheated cuprian tourmaline before copper was discovered in gem grade tourmaline from Mozambique.
